Recipe: Steak with Red Wine Sauce
- 4 sirloin steaks
- olive oil for cooking
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- red wine sauce
- 3 1/2 oz of red wine
- salt and pepper to taste
- Brush the sirloin steaks with a little oil to prevent them from sticking to BBQ cooking surface. Cook steaks on the BBQ hot plate until the meat is well cooked on both sides. How long you cook the steak for will depend on if you prefer your steak cooked rare, medium, or well done. When cooking the steak use the juices which will appear on the uncooked side as an indication when you should turn the steak over.
- To make the red wine sauce, pour 3.5 oz of red wine into a small frying pan over medium heat. Continue the red wine reduction until you have reduced the red wine by 2/3. Add a dollop of butter, stirring constantly to combine the butter with the wine. Reduce from the heat when the butter is no longer visible in the pan and the sauce has a smooth consistency. Place the cooked steak on a serving plate on top of green vegetables, pour over red wine sauce. Serve some greens to accompany this dish on the side (optional).
